Entrust Achieves Coveted Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) STAR Certification for nShield as a Service HSMs

CSA certification for cloud-based hardware security module (HSM) service highlights commitment to data security and trust

Entrust, a leading provider of trusted identities, payments and data protection, announces it has obtained Cloud Security Alliance’s Security Trust Assurance and Risk (CSA STAR) certification for its nShield as a Service offering. CSA STAR is the industry’s most powerful program for cloud security assurance and this certification demonstrates the company’s competency to deliver cloud services with strict and transparent security and privacy controls and validates the security posture of its cryptography on demand offering.

nShield as a Service delivers cryptography on demand and is designed for organizations embracing cloud-first strategies, selective cloud migration, or adding HSM capacity to handle workload spikes. The customer experience is consistent and familiar – users interact with the cloud-based nShield® HSMs in the same way as with nShield appliances in their own data centers. Customers utilizing the unique CodeSafe secure execution environment to run sensitive application code within a secure FIPS-validated boundary have that same opportunity using cloud-based as well as on premises HSMs.

“Enterprises understand that they are responsible for data security and customer privacy – whether that data is in the cloud or in their own data center. That’s why a cloud security strategy and best practices are so critical,” said Cindy Provin, Senior Vice President and General Manager for Entrust data protection solutions. “Earning CSA STAR certification highlights our commitment to cloud security best practices and transparency around the security safeguards we have in place, which is a powerful tool for building trust and confidence for our customers.”

“Certification for the CSA STAR registry is obtained through a rigorous process of self and independent evaluation measured by a set of cloud security principles known as the CSA Cloud Controls Matrix (CCM),” said John DiMaria, Assurance
